Thank you so much for making me look perfect! As a model I am very picky with how makeup artists do my makeup. However I was very impressed with Phoebe. She really knows what she is doing. I told her I had a long day of shooting ahead so she recommended I do the Airbrush foundation so I did and I absolutely loved it! I wish she could do my makeup like that everyday. The makeup wore great never fading or having to retouch never got oily! It was definetely the best. All of my photos looked perfect as far as the makeup went. Phoebe is very professional and highly recommended in my book. She is now my go to makeup artist for all my shoots. I am so glad my friend recommended her to me.

Excellent makeup artist. I hired her for Halloween and she came last minute and saved the day. I wanted the Queen of Dragons look from Game of Thrones and I thought she did a spot on job.

Nat is an amazing makeup artist! She very creative and steps outside the box for that unique look. It's rare you can find someone who sees your vision and improves it with their very own style. Every look is different and that's what I like about her skills.

Stephanie is an amazing makeup artist. Easy to work with, friendly and professional. She gave me the perfect look for my wedding day. I wanted a look that "looked like me" but with a touch of Glam!! As requested, Stephanie focused on my eyes and made me feel at ease wearing fake eyelashes as I had never worn them before. Stephanie was punctual and I highly recommend Stephanie for any occasion! Thank you Stephanie for helping make my wedding day FABULOUS..... YOU ROCK!!!!

SUPER SATISFIED Sweet Sixteen mom and daughter(s)!!!! LIz truly is an artist with both hair and makeup. I communicated my daughter's wishes with Liz via text, emai, and phone conversations. She was clear and honest about what would be possible for my daughters' hair and she did not disappoint. She listened to our ideas and also shared some of her own. Liz arrived on time, was super organized with professional makeup and decorative hair supplies, and was easy to work with. After finishing my 16 year old's hair and makeup she offered to braid my younger daughter's hair and apply some makeup free of charge. So SWEET!!! We definitely recommend Brides by Liz for hair and makeup for any special event.

GLAD MAKEOVER EXCEEDS ALL EXPECTATIONS!!!! Recently I was invited to a "a semi~formal" Gala.,and found myself seeking out the services of a Professional Celebrity makeup artist. I needed someone to take my everyday self (think running /workout shorts, tank tops, hoodies, scrubs, and running shoes, no makeup, no styled hair) and turn my "ugly ducking" into a "beautiful swan" I went online and was lucky to find the multialent Dorisa Lew. Doris used her skill and experience to put all my fear about hiring a professional, to a rest . I didn't want to look "plastic/feke" and I have a scar that extends from my hairline down into my eyebrow, plus I am blind in my right eye, very, very sensitive. And I wanted my hair tone done up off my shoulders, but something soft, not severe. I wanted a soft, natural, simple, but Classic look. Doris accomplished that and more. She did bring out my " inner swan" , and boosted my self confidence 10x over!!! I cannot say enough about Doris or express how much this meant to me!!! I can't helpf myself to look how so beautiful!!!! Next time I will come again..... Thank you Doris!!!! If you have a need of a professional makeup artist, i highly recommended Doris Lew!!!! She will transform you into your "beautiful swan"

Phoebe did such an amazing job on my hair and makeup for my 1920s themed wedding, we didn’t even do a trial run before. I was able to show her my dress and explain to her what I wanted and she delivered. I normally do my own makeup for everything since I love makeup, but I’m so glad I decided to get it done. I’m still continuing to get compliments on my look. I definitely would recommend her for your bridal needs!

I have worked with Julie on multiple occasions over the last 10 years. She does an amazing job enhancing a person’s natural beauty. I love working with her because she is an extremely talented artist and is always professional. It really makes a difference when your makeup artist listens to what you want and understands the look you are going for- Julie nails it every time! She has traveled the world as a makeup artist and is one of the top artists in our nation, I feel so fortunate to have such an amazing makeup artist here in San Diego! She is passionate about her artistry and really cares about perfecting each clients look! She always makes us feel so beautiful. Julie goes above and beyond. She has always does a fantastic job with my makeup over the last decade and always uses quality products. I highly recommend her for any event!
